I saw a lot of trains when I was a youngster, and I was never that excited!
We lived a block from railroad tracks.
Have a very blessed day!
He sounds like he's really trying to be Double Rainbow Guy.
Proof it's never too late to have a happy childhood!
In 1991-92 I lived next to a train yard in Emporia, Kansas. Took about a month to get used to the sound of trains coming right through the house (no, not literally, but it sure seemed like it). My first tornado season in town I remember waking up during storms to the noise praying "be a train, be a train, be a train" and going back to sleep when the horn finally blew.
I looked at an apartment in Berkeley. Decent location and quiet. What I failed to find out was the BART track was immediately behind the building which would shake with the train would go by. Eventually got use to it.
We now live near the track here in Fishers. Just the Fair Train and the weekend dinner trains run on this track. Not so bad. Just early evening, then quiet again through the nights and mornings.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be misquoted and used against you.
I lived in the age of steam. The intersection of Chicago Avenue and Halsted Street was a bridge over railroad tracks, sort of a railroad yard. You could stand on the bridge and look right down the stack as the engine went by.
OT--Sort of. Here is a guy that put on a show on stages. All he had was a microphone, and his mouth. The hunter going by train.
I'm glad there isn't a video of him making this video because I can only imagine what he was doing with his non-camera hand.
Oh, and "Listen to that bell...listen to that bell!!" STFU AND WE CAN HEAR IT!!!!
Yeah, the guy's a little whacked, but those are two very nice locomotives...
And the second one is extremely rare...only a handful still survive...
Now if it was me filming that, I'd just shut up and record the sound of the engines...
But then, I'm a train geek...last year I took my wife to Bailey Yard during our trip to Nebraska...
Chicago BlackHawks...2010 Stanley Cup Champions...It was fun while it lasted!
The condo I lived in when I first moved back to Edmonton had my bedroom facing the CN Rail main line and if a train derailed it'd end up in the parking lot.
"I kill for the code to disarm this mess..."
To say that things in the apartment shaked would be an understatement...
And apparently, there are a lot of trains that go from Chicago to Omaha and Omaha and back...
Of course it came in real handy when me and my mates were making a film for our TV class...the ending had a guy getting hit by a train...
After many hours shooting stuff elsewhere, everyone was ready to head home...
"How long until a train comes by" was asked by one on the crew...
My reply..."We've only been here 5 minutes...you'll be out of here it 10"...
At least we know that woman wasn't his wife... she didn't throw herself in front of the train.
"Ride The Barrel & Get Pitted... So Pitted."
